A business accelerator program being presented by the World Trade Centre Winnipeg will work to open doors for Manitoba companies to secure business opportunities in Europe.
Fast Forward Normandie is today at 4 p.m. in the DA Thompson Boardroom on the 22nd floor of the Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP offices.
Alexandre Wahl, director of Miriade, France’s Lower Normandy economic development agency, will be the guest speaker. The session will be followed with a Q&A period from participants, who have been invited to sample the “flavours of Normandy,” featuring calvados, wine, local cheese and other regional delicacies.
“WTC Winnipeg is proud to partner with Miriade to give businesses the opportunity to participate in this program that will help them break into the European market by offering them personalized bilingual assistance and information,” said Mariette Mulaire, WTC Winnipeg president and CEO. “These businesses will also benefit from the expertise of companies already on site and receive support from our network.”
